Abhishek was joined by Ajay, as they promoted their new film The Big Bull on the comedy show. Abhishek stars in the lead role of Harshad Mehta, the late stockbroker whose life was dramatised in the recent series, Scam 1992: The Harshad Mehta Story.


“What did you do during the lockdown?” host Kapil Sharma asked Abhishek, who laughed and replied, “We did corona.” Abhishek and his family, including father Amitabh Bachchan, wife Aishwarya and daughter Aaradhya, all tested positive for the virus last year, and were hospitalised.

In a more serious tone, he continued, “He (Ajay) was the first to call me. He said, ‘What is this? What is going on? How has this happened to you?’” Abhishek added, laughing, “Then I realised that five or six days before that, he’d come to meet me.”
